Here's something to check out. This month, author Brenda Novak is running her fourth annual online auction for diabetes research.
The goal this year is to raise over $300,000. That's a lot of change, so you know there are some really good things available.
There are literally hundreds of things up for auction, donated by some top-notch people and companies. I did a quick perusal, and here's a sampling of what's posted.
